Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

My 3 year old loves this movie! We watch it over and over and over!

When we first watched this movie, I had never seen my son so excited and observant about a movie. He sat through the entire movie and would not move. He has asked me to watch it over and over and over since he first watched. It is now his favorite movie. There is a lot of action and a happy ending to it. There are some scary moments in the movie. (hyenas attack a village, evil monkeys, etc). So if your child is a bit nervous about scenes like this, you might want to wait till they are older. We love this movie! And give it 4 stars. I would have given it 5 stars, but there is a scene I don't really care for in the movie. Where the monkey queen calls for her "crackers" and small monkeys address her with southern/hillbilly accents. I feel that the scene or the terms could have been left out.
